Current and Classic Architecture in London

Any city that has not remained paralyzed with the time, has an ancient part and a modern one.

So far, everything is clear. There are cities where the breaking point between some and others is clear, but in other cases, nevertheless, the difference is not so clear.

In London, as in many other places, the catastrophes have left his trace (fires, …), but it is a city that has been able to be filling his streets of buildings, bridges and emblematic parks. Come to this point, someone can wonder …: what?

The secret is to play with them to include them in photos that reflect his union, not his alienation. Personally, I like to photograph the old buildings reflected in modern windows, or join some and others, as if there were the same (or doing that a big crane supports the weight of British Museum …).

Walking along London, each one can find the best way of combining, joining, putting up, mixing or differentiating all kinds of buildings.
